Service to others is the cornerstone on which Indian Mountain School was built more than 90 years ago. Every member of the IMS community is encouraged to live the school motto, life through service.
Teachers, advisors, coaches, and administrators guide and challenge students to participate in community service projects that benefit others in our school, our local towns, and the world at large. We walk miles to combat world hunger, shoot hoops to collect food for our local food pantry, and empty our piggy banks to donate to animal shelters. Students routinely volunteer their free time and talents to participate in fundraisers and benefit concerts for many different charities and child-centered organizations. They also create cards and artwork for people who need support, visit nearby nursing homes and hospitals, and participate in our schoolwide recycling program.
Children learn to think of others, to consider how their actions affect others, and to help make a difference in their community. Our goal is to support the moral growth and personal development of each student as they embrace the values of compassion and respect for others.
